Diwali 2019 at Matsqui Elementary

We had a wonderful day of celebrating Diwali this year at Matsqui Elementary. Students and staff dressed in brightly coloured clothing, bhangra dance teams excitedly performed, our gym was decorated and lit up, and our families prepared so much amazing food for our community! All these things contributed to a wonderful celebration of the Festival of Lights. 

Mrs. Aman Sekhon, our Library Learning Commons teacher, took a lead role in organizing the event. I'd like to extend a special thank you to her for the time, commitment and energy she put into working with our students and families to coordinate an awesome event.

I'd like to also say a massive 'thank you' to all of the families who genersouly provided our staff and students with an amazing Indian lunch and tealights for every student! Thank you to the following families for your generous contributions: 

The Baring family, Bharti family, Brar family, Kahlon family, Heera family, Poonian family, Sandhu family, Sekhon family, and Shokar family.

Happy Diwali, everyone!
